ASGE guideline for infection control during GI endoscopy

Nov 15, 2016, 18:29 PM
Millions of GI endoscopies are performed annually throughout the United States, and it is reassuring that documented instances of infectious adverse events remain rare.2 Several recent reports of infections with multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO) associated with duodenoscope use suggest that prior assumptions regarding endoscopy-related infection rates may be an underestimate, particularly for ERCP. These outbreaks of infection have led to a reassessment of current infection control practices. Endoscopy-related transmission of infections may occur if microorganisms are spread from patient to patient by contaminated equipment or if microorganisms are spread from the gut lumen during endoscopy through the bloodstream to susceptible organs, adjacent tissues, or prostheses. Non-endoscopic transmission of infections within endoscopy units also can occur if microorganisms are transmitted from patients to endoscopy personnel.
